Enjoy an afternoon sail on Sydney Harbour aboard a historic tall ship. Learn about Sydney’s maritime roots and your ship’s sailing history during a 90-minute cruise that provides close views of iconic sights including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Fort Denison. Get great photo ops and soak up the spectacular scenery. You can even lend the crew a hand by steering the ship and hoisting the sails.
  • Discover Sydney Harbour on an authentic Tall Ship
  • 1 hour and 30 minute cruise through the waterways
  • Sail past iconic landmarks
  • Become part of the crew for a truly unique experience
  • Commentary about Sydney Harbour highlights and history of the ships
  • Light refreshments
Make your own way to Campbells Cove jetty, located in the Rocks, the historic neighborhood where Sydney began. After boarding your 1850s-style ship, admire the exquisite restoration work that has rejuvenated this old wooden ship, one of only two tall ships that still sail the waters of Sydney Harbour.
Enjoy the sea breeze and waterfront views as your ship sets sail, passing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and gliding by Sydney Opera House. Hear the history of Sydney’s transformation from a sleepy colony town to a modern world-class city, and how the tall ships that once filled the harbor facilitated trade across the oceans.
If you like, tap into your inner sailor and help to raise the sails or take the wheel of the ship. Or simply relax on deck and admire Sydney from the water, snapping photos of Shark Island, Fort Denison and Sydney Harbour National Park. Snack on light refreshments served during your cruise.
Your ship returns you to Campbells Cove at the end of your 90-minute cruise.

We loved it! A beautiful old boat with lots of history, knowledgeable guides and crew, a bar and free snacks. Beautiful to come back into the harbour under sail with no engine noise and be able to soak up the sights.

Staff was highly knowledgeable about ship and history of the area. Very nice that they actually put up sails during the cruise.
